Selena Gomez Dishes About Her Role In Risqué New Movie, 'Spring Breakers:' 'It's Raw'

Selena Gomez Spring Breakers

Selena Gomez confirmed she’s starring in the edgy new film, ‘Spring Breakers,’ alongside Emma Roberts, James Franco and Vanessa Hudgens

Selena Gomez may be ice skating in Utah with her boyfriend, Justin Bieber, right now, but after the new year begins, the 19-year-old starlet is going to put the petal to the medal and break out of her Disney shell with her new movie, Spring Breakers.

“I’m really, really excited about it,” Selena recently told MTV News. “It’s a different character than I have ever played before. It’s a different kind of vibe I think than people are used to seeing me in. What you’re going to see is more raw, I think. It’s going to be raw and more about acting.”

Written by Harmony Korine, the film is about four college girls who rob a restaurant in order to get money for their trip to the beach with “a rapping drug and arms dealer who bails them out of jail and entices them to kill his arch-rival,” who would be played by James Franco.

If all goes as planned, Emma Roberts, 20, will reportedly play a southern girl who “feeds off danger,” and Selena will be a religious girl who “isn’t a thrill-seeker like the rest of the group.” Vanessa Hudgens is also attached to the project, which is set to begin filming the beginning of 2012.

Do YOU think Selena will have as much success with her acting as she’s had with her music?

‘Selena will be a religious girl who “isn’t a thrill-seeker like the rest of the group.”’
I don’t find anything ‘risque’ or ‘raw’ about that, except the fact that the movie will not be Disney’s…

This doesn’t sound raw or even clever in any way. It sounds stupid, cliche, and like someone’s trying too hard to be edgy.

Based on the description of the movie, it doesn’t even sound “raw.” It’s not even a raw movie, it sounds comedic in a way.

I believe Selena is an incredible person who’s got amazing gifts for acting & singing; that being said I also hope Hollywood doesn’t rob her of the equally incredible self-respect she has an which Selena shows others they to can have. I am proud of Selena, she’s got my Love, respect, & full support. Selena is in the hearts & prayers of all of us who care about her; whether we be family, friend, or true fan. I hope all that she does she can be proud of & never have to keep her amazing gifts from others such as her youngest fans. May Selena always be Blessed by God as she has Blessed us. An no hating in Selena, she has done nothing to deserve it. Stop the hate.

Selena isn’t a good singer… She sings live so horribly!

Her acting is okay, but not my personal choice. It’s too held back- there’s nothing fresh about Selena’s acting. I bet people back in the 50′s were better than her.

I only know this girl because of her past boyfriends, too. Taylor Lautner, Nick Jonas, Justin Bieber. Who’s next? Simon Cowell? Thank God that he’s engaged (I think…)!

Kudos to Selena for taking on a role that for her is off=the beaten path and outside the box for her. The only thing is Harmony Korine is not a filmmaker whose movies get wide-release. Has anywone seen “Gummo” or “juliendonkeyboy”? Well I’m sure James Franco (yes the guy from “General Hospital”) will help its profile. I’m looking forward to it.

James Franco is known for much more than General Hospital!

I would like to get “raw” with James. Who cares about the rest of the cast or the movie in general. I would see it just to see him.
